Global Women’s Health, Rights and Empowerment Initiative (GWHREI) is a community based LBQ+ and sex worker led non-profit organization working to mainstream the rights, wellbeing, and inclusion of women in Nigeria.
Bridging the gender gap... Building a world where women thrive
A society where women’s rights are respected and protected, with no fear of marginalization, violence, and erasure.
Championing women’s rights, safety, and bodily autonomy by working on intersectional justice issues affecting their health, rights, and wellbeing, enabling meaningful inclusion to ensure that no woman is discriminated against due to diversity, including their sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and sex characteristics.
As a feminist organization, we adopt a human rights participatory approach across all our programming, recognizing that our communities of women have a central role to play in transforming the society to realize their rights and attain the highest standards of health and wellbeing. To advance this, we improve the capacities of the women we work with and for, through facilitated participatory learning and community accountability mechanism.
Our engagements prioritize community participation that is inclusive of the most underserved communities of women, encouraging organized action and collaborations, for co-production. We promote power sharing for social transformation, and this trickles down to our needs assessment process and programming for solutions.
